The Gerasene Demoniac and Jesus

dvgt 04 001b ch45.02 demonized man

_

If we will just cooperate with Him, Jesus will throw out our demons and do great things for us. Right?

Wrong. What kind of a wimpy god would that be?

Jesus is quite capable of healing us on His own. For that is what a real God does. A real God creates out of nothing. He casts out demons.He makes new. He destroys evil. All without having to rely on the help of the ones who need the healing.

Listen in to this sermon on Jesus’ encounter with the Gerasene demoniac delivered by Brian Seaman. Brian is a Lutheran layman and president of our church council at Lutheran Church of the Master, Corona del Mar, CA.

Pastor Mark unpacks these verses in John 7 and explains why we also must not give in to the legalists of our time. _

“Jesus spins me round, round…”?

I made it to the 1:50 mark. Can you beat that?

_

There are lesser (we hope) versions of this going on in BIG “churches” all across America.  “Lesser” doesn’t mean better.

_

_

But there are tons of smaller, traditional congregations that won’t go there. Thanks be to God.

Justification by Faith

4944530429_d7f7d35103_z

_

This same sermon could be preached in any Catholic church or Baptist church. Or any Reformed church, or Pentecostal church. It could even be preached in other Lutheran churches.

_

All that it would take is for a preacher to read and understand the Galatian letter and Paul’s intent to bring the Galatian churches back onto the rails of faith in Christ, alone, for our justification before a righteous God who demands from us nothing short of perfection.
